Dear Miami Community,
It is with deep regret and sorrow that I inform you of the death of James R. Stephenson, early Saturday, Jan. 2, in a car accident in Riley Township.
James, a junior from Hanover Township, was an urban and regional planning major in Oxford who completed his first two years at the Hamilton campus. He lived off campus.
The university extends sympathy to James' family and friends.
Services are pending at this time. We will notify you here when services are announced. Students, faculty or staff who knew James, and may need assistance or have questions, please contact the office of the dean of students in Oxford, 529-1877, of the office of student affairs in Hamilton, 785-3211.
On behalf of the university administration,
Dean of Students and Associate Vice President for Student Affairs
